This is the only store brand cleanser I will ever use for my face. Keeps breakouts at bay and I've never had an irritating reaction.

I like this product but my skin is too sensitive to use this product. It leaves my skin irritated and strips my skin of its moisture.

This was a great add to my #campusvoxbox. The scrub is not too harsh on my skin yet rinses cleanly and leaves my skin feeling clean.

I've tried this a few times and it's great but unless you really need a deep scrub don't use this it can be very harsh on your face.
